About our home

Please note this is our main home so we are extremely unlikely to accept points or swaps for any stays of less than 10 days overseas beyond Australia or the Pacific Islands. It is also usually rented over Christmas and New Year. Thanks.

Set on the sunny side of Lake Wakatipu in stunning Queenstown with its own boat mooring and a jetty at the bottom of the garden. Walk 10 minutes along the fully formed lake side track to the Hilton Hotel & you can catch the water taxi direct to Queenstown's famous downtown restaurants, boutiques and nightlife 10 minutes across the lake.

The Queenstown cycle way goes right past the house and you can travel for miles in both directions, soak up the scenery and maybe stop at some world renowned vineyards along the way.

The house is a real home. It's an extremely comfortable space with a great feel set off by the water at your door step.

Queenstown needs no real sell. It's world famous for good reason so if you haven't been before checkout www.queenstownnz.co.nz and I'm sure you will want to visit.
